In this tableware collection primal, refined and functional forms and materials relate to one of the most important resources of this planet; water. The iron sludge that is used in the clay, engobes and glazes represent the production process of potable water. Thereby this tableware brings us closer to something we often take for granted. 

Each product is made of porcelain clay mixed with iron sludge which gives it a light grey tint with tiny speckles of a darker colour. The outside is unglazed which gives it a soft but slightly rougher texture. On the inside a smooth protective layer of transparent glaze is applied to make it water resistant and food proof. The name and stamp in each product tells the origin of the iron sludge. 

About the Oer project

Within the Oer project we investigate various applications of local and natural (residual) materials for ceramic products.
